I’ve got a few books on the go at the moment. I’ve revisited Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert to try to get myself back in the writing mood!

I’ve bought myself a lovely new notebook to start documenting my ideas for blog posts as well as creative writing ideas. I’m also contemplating enrolling in a creative writing course in order to get the ball rolling for myself. I’m having a writers block at the moment in general; I’ll go to start writing something and then feel like it’s not good enough and totally scrap it!

This week I’ve been catching up with the rest of the world and listening to Harry Styles’ album on Spotify.

Lavender Oil and my Yankee candle – Clean Cotton. I’ve had this candle all summer long and it’s going strong! I’m also wearing a vanilla scented body mist from Stradivarius which is quite nice!

I’m hoping that I will start to be more optimistic. I’ve been working hard on it but it’s still not feeling as natural as it used to.

Tracksuit pants and vest top! Plain and simple today!

I bought a planner this week and I adore it! It’s an Irish company and it is so cute, as well as being a little badass! The company is called Leanún (pronounced: la-noon) and their planner has everything I need! It has a monthly spread in calendar form, followed by space for your goals and action plan, as well as weekly spreads too. I really love it! It was €35 and I think it was worth every cent! Check out their website here!

I’m a bit all over the place at the moment. I’m having days when I’m not feeling great, and days where things seem great. I’m doing lots of Yoga because I think it is great for the mind, as well as getting out for walks when the weather is good. I believe that exercising is so important for mental health, just to boost the happy hormones!

I finished watching The Missing which was really good! This week I’ve started watching Top of the Lake, a new series on Netflix. I’ve also re-watched The Shining and Finding Nemo. I watched True Story last night which I didn’t think lived up to the hype but was good enough.
